Duck Dynasty Star Phil Robertson says Something that Makes Liberals Explode!

Phil Robertson tells it like it is. Since he’s not running for political office, and he doesn’t need the money, he can be truthful. Also, as an uncompromising Christian, he wants people to understand the implications of their worldview in this life and in the life to come.

It’s called forcing or pushing the antithesis. It’s done by taking the operating assumptions of a particular worldview and showing what it would be like to be thoroughly consistent with it. It’s based on Proverbs 26:4-5 (also see Matt. 21:24-27; Prov. 3:7; 28:11; Rom. 12:16):

What you see is what you get. There is nothing beyond or above our world that we must give a moral accounting. “All we are is dust in the wind,” and as a result when Hitler and the greatest philanthropist turned to dust, their life-to-come was the same no matter what they did in this life.
